How many liberals would describe an AWB as "radical"?

I mean, as bands go, they were just kind of average...and white. Certainly not radical.

Michael Bloomberg's employees created a book purportedly full of his offensive quotes. Here it is.
https://tinyurl.com/qwjl255

businessinsider.com

In 1990, employees at Bloomberg LP gave their boss, presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a booklet containing notable quotes they said were attributed to him over the years as a gag birthday gift.

That booklet, called "The Portable Bloomberg: The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg," is a compendium of allegedly sexist, crude, and off-color remarks that Bloomberg's employees heard him make, including "if women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they'd go to the library instead of Bloomingdale's."

Half the piece claims these are not real, yet the quote from the "author" in the piece says they are.

Many trying really hard at the time to denounce them as not real.

Bloom has spent over $418 million.

Unreal.

=========

That's only his reported amount. his actual spending already is much higher, as he has guaranteed his 2000 staff people jobs through election day, with full benefits. At a fully loaded cost of $75K per staffer, that's another $125 million in committed spending, before hiring his full compliment of staff. Offices and technology for all those people will add even more. In addition, he's already committed to spend a reported $200 million in advertising and social media, though that number will no doubt also go up. In other words, he's probably already on the hook for something like ~ $750 million, of which $418 million is already spent. Today.

The daughter called earlier and told me there was a murder at Gallery Place near the busy H St. area last Thursday. Scary. I've always felt safe walking in that area. She said that the homeless sleep on the National Portrait Gallery steps and the area smells of weed all the time. She worked today and watched the little girls dressed as Disney princesses and their parents walk to the Capital One Center to attend Disney on Ice. I assume because of the venue,there is more security during events.

Hey, Jane. I'm reading a book about Richard Feynman. Take a guess what his dog's name was if you don't already know.

(He got the dog after marrying an English girl he met on a beach in Geneva, causing a previous girlfriend to write him a letter that began with the words "Dirty Dick, Filthy Fucking Feynman.")

The Infamous Ignatz

The more money Reginald VanGleason III spends on his tone deaf BS that barely even plays in New York anymore the better for Trump.

The Dems are bonkers; a tight-lipped, up-tight, sexist pig of a billionaire no taller than Richie Rich, an unrepentant, spittle-soaked old Stalinist and in between the Wisconsonite wife of either Heckel or Jeckel and a fake little Howdy Doody around whom Pinocchio dare not drop the soap.

KK, to answer your question from the previous thread as to what the CDC has learned from the cruise ship subjects: I have no idea. (They do NOT communicate with doctors. Why would that be something you'd want to do, if you were trying to control an epidemic??)

What I have learned is that the virus is quite infectious, especially in close quarters, and most unfortunately, you are not going to have ANY idea who is carrying it.

The Infamous Ignatz

So, I can't remember, have we chosen who we think will be the Dem nominee?

Personally I'm thinking Sanders is it.
The others have all rotated through as the alternative to Der Kommisar for a time but every one has been pulled back into the crab-lice bucket by the others.
I don't think in the party as a whole there is enough ideological objection to his views nor sufficient moxie to face-down his revolutionary vanguard of pimple -faced proletarians.

KevlarKid

Iggy ;) YA THINK?!?!

jmh--you asked about "dose" of zinc. Once again, no idea. The ones we use--like when we get to the gate, before we board the airplane, or if we are feeling a cold coming on, or if I am taking care of a slew of kids in the morning--is 18.75 mg of zinc acetate per lozenge. The point is to have zinc in your oral and hopefully nasal pharynx, so I don't think amount is too important.
My husband fabricated a nasal zinc prep out of a zinc acetate powder and glycerin based on the package info from an old Zicam box we had. It's goopier than Zicam's, but seems to work

Maybe there's a nice compounding pharmacist among the readership who can weigh in here.

Google zinc toxicity too, so you restrain yourselves.

And, as always, I would never, ever practice medicine on the internet.

the fix is in. so why not have a lil fun with a casting call for Hypocritic Preezy candidates:

Bernie Sanders......Larry David
Joe Biden...........Rob Riggle
Elizabeth Warren....Sandra Gould (Mrs. Cravitz)
Mayor Cabron........Alfredo E. Neumann
Mike................John Lovitz

that's a buncha D-listers ennit?

MissMarple2

My opinion:

They will go ahead and let Sanders be nominated because they know they cannot beat Trump so will use Sanders as the sacrifice, probably along with Hillary as the VP candidate. The idea with Sanders is that he will either lose or drop dead of a heart attack and that will get rid of him as the perpetual candidate.

Sanders will take the nomination because he probably can use the leftover campaign money after he loses (since I will bet he has no life insurance and his wife is getting a bit nervous). Hillary will accept the VP nomination because she figures being a candidate will protect her from arrest and prosecution.

The VP debate will demonstrate that Pence has been taking lessons from the Master. Bernie vs. Trump debates may bring Sanders to the cardiac unit before election day.

Result: Both Bernie and Hillary will be removed from further involvement in presidential elections.

Hillary will accept the VP position because she will have figured out a way for Bernie to drop dead.

Reading last night's link to CTH.

Again, I ask--anybody know who this fellow is ?? What's his background? Credibility based on attention to detail? keeping up on timeline?

And it reminds me--what happened to men? These guys are all pajama boy looking fellows--Rosenstein, McCabe, definitely Strzok. Vindemann, for God's sake, looks like the Pillsbury dough boy.
Not a one of them looks capable of lifting a second grader up to a tree branch, let alone leading hundreds of other men.

People are writing articles that he has a plan of in mind even if he isn't the Dem nominee. I forget what, maybe loan them to the DNC.

Bernie will not be the Dem nominee. Hillary will not be anyone's nominee for anything. The Dems have a problem unseen in years if not decades or centuries.

Biden - too old and an idiot
Bernie - too commie talking and signalling
Mini-Mike - too sexist, racist,and xenophobic plus he is too short
Mayor Pete - too homo and too phony
Klobuchar - too phony smiling, do nothing ass hole senator

Who's left? No one. I see a dark knight coming out of the blinding sun. But who?

Would you believe, Andrew Coumo? Or Gavin Newsome?

clarice, if you find a link re: FDR and his SC--please post. A certain someone I know well has his hair on fire re that tweet.

That's why I am asking about sundance--that post explains what we all know, for YEARS now, and why something MUST be done!
(I've known it so long, I have forgotten big hunks of it.)

Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration. He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers....

....ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

It was a bad day here at JIB house as I watched the first time VAR turned over 2 goals in a single PL game. Of course, they were Chelsea goals. Lot of discussion on the chat rooms about the efficacy of VAR. Why even have on the ground officials. Lets leave it up Robots.
